ELA Streaming Club – Seaspiracy
Register now for our third Streaming Club session on 24 June 2021 hosted in collaboration with Animal Law Reform South Africa. The session will engage with laws, polices and practices concerning animal trading and consumption, with a focus on the exploitation of marine life.
The Streaming Club session has two parts:
Part 1 (STREAM): Before 7pm on 24 June, stream the Netflix documentary, Seaspiracy (1 hour 30 minutes long) in your own homes. Seaspiracy is a fantastic documentary by Ali Tabrizi:
“Passionate about ocean life, a filmmaker sets out to document the harm that humans do to marine species – and uncovers alarming global corruption.”
Part 2 (ENGAGE): Engage with our expert panel via Zoom from 7pm to 8pm on 24 June about insights arising from the film.
The panel that will discuss issues arising from Seaspiracy is made up of three incredible and inspiring experts working the animal law space:
Prathna Singh is the founder of Ban Animal Trading South Africa; Amy P. Wilson is a Director of Animal Law Reform South Africa; and Kathy Hessler is a professor of animal law at Lewis & Clark Law School, USA.
Members who register can participate in our online competition and win a copy of an incredible book co-authored by one of our panelists, Kathy Hessler, Animal Law in a Nutshell. To participate in the competition become a member for as little as R250/R500 (depending on the type of membership). Zoom details available on registration.
The ELA thanks Animal Law Reform South Africa for their collaboration on this event!
The panel will be co-chaired by Dr Melanie Murcott, Vice Chairperson of the ELA and a Senior Lecturer in Environmental Law at the University of Pretoria, and Tokyo Ndlela, a recent LLM graduate in Environmental Law at the University of Pretoria, practicing attorney and animal rights activist.
